"The Cowboys need a new stadium like I need a fluffing hole in the head."

"If I were you I'd reconsider that need for a hole.

"Surely, I jest." :P

You had better be jesting for I loathe the Cowboys like lots of others here.

Government paid stadiums are scams. Jerry Jones owns the SECOND MOST VALUABLE TEAM IN AMERICA. I think he can afford his own stadium. <_<

That may be true, but government funded stadiums aren't anything new. I would bet that 95% of stadiums in history have been built with government funds. I know in baseball alone there have been only 3 stadiums built with private money in history. Dodger Stadium, Yankee Stadium and the park the Giants play in (whatever it's called now).

Only 75,000 seats? I thought Jerry Jones wanted 100,000. Oh goodie another football team gets a new stadium before the 49ers. WAKE UP JOHN DORK I MEAN YORK AND THE CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO!

49ers and Vikings are gonna be the lsat 2 to get new stadiums probably :evil:

Most of you are saying the Cowboys dont need a new stadium and on and on and on,and I understand the Cowboys are'nt the most popular team here,but take it from someone who HAS ACTUALLY BEEN TO TEXAS STADIUM IN THE LAST YEAR

the are in serious need of a new one.It's 33 years old and it shows.Seeing a stadium on TV is one thing and on TV it looks like a shiny palace,but actually being there and walking through it,sitting in old metal seats the style of which are long obsolete,and many many other things I dont care to go on about would give you guys a whole new perspective on it.Hate the Cowboys or not,they desperately need a new facility.Puckguy I sympathize with you because John York is so ho-hum about getting anything done there its ridiculous.San Fran is a fantastic city and deserves a football cathedral to rival the former Pac Bell Park,and its ashamed they dont have one.I bet all of you Cowboy nay-sayers' teams all have fairly new parks UNLESS you root for the Vikings or 49ers,and maybe I guess the

Jets and Giants although that will be fixed soon as well.Like them or not the Cowboys are one of THE premier franchises in all of sports and they should have the stadium to show for it.

The cowboys are need of a new stadium. The reason the owners don't have to pay for the new stadium is because the citizens approve the bonds for a new stadium. Therefore the owners don't have to pay for it.

In any case,

GO TEXANS! :notworthy:

Despite my dislike for the Cowboys as a team, I've always admired JJ's business accumen. It looks like, if this passes the voters muster, he'll have a top notch facility.

And don't cry for the city of Arlington, guys: the 5% of the naming rights deal alone will likely result in them receiving around $ 1.5 - 2 million a year... if memory serves, Reliant coughed up something like $30 million a year for its naming rights deal with the Texans. Add $ 2 mil a year in rent plus parts of certain other revenue streams, and trust me, they'll get the money back.

Just imagine what someone like Nike would pay the Cowboys for the rights to a new facility. The competition will be fierce, because love 'em or hate 'em, the Cowboys brand is the second most powerful in all of North American sports.
